You know we have officially hit a new low on the planet when people are being sued for allegedly passing STDs, and when we’re actually publishing stories about them, but alas, here we are.

Kris Humphries reportedly is being sued by a woman who alleges he gave her herpes. TMZ provides details of the case:

Kayla Goldberg claims she met Kris in August, 2010 at the Newsroom Cafe on Robertson Blvd. in L.A. They flirted, exchanged numbers, and she claims that night they met up at Trousdale nightclub on the Sunset Strip.

According to the suit, Kris came on to Kayla, touching, kissing and dancing with her. Kayla claims he took her to his hotel and they had sex multiple times … including oral sex. The suit claims during a portion of the sexual encounter Kris did not wear a condom.

The lawsuit claims Kris did not inform Kayla he had herpes — and she claims in the suit that he did indeed have the disease.

Kayla says a week later she was diagnosed with herpes. Her symptoms included a sore throat, fever, body aches and immobilizing pain, as well as extreme vaginal irritation and painful legions on her genitalia.

At least we have achieved some consistency: Kayla is the second woman to claim Humphries has sex without using a condom. But really? You’re going to sue him for allegedly giving you an STD? If this isn’t an awful example of someone making a cash grab at a rich person’s expense, then I don’t know what it is.

But I do know that this is much more than what Kris Humphries signed up for when he got involved with Kim Kardashian. You think he accepted that relationship with the intention of one day showing up on TMZ because he’s being sued for allegedly giving someone herpes? Two years ago, this barely would have made a ripple in the world. Now it’s front-page material. He did it to himself.
